From May 30th through June 5th, representatives from 22 countries gathered in Washington DC to demand that the Obama administration change its hostile policies towards Cuba and free the Cuban 5, unjustly imprisoned in the U.S. since 1998.
During these days, a number of public events were organized with renowned personalities, including a press conference, a panel about Cuba in Africa and the Cuban 5 in Angola, a meeting of attorneys, a panel of intellectuals, presentations by known authors of newly released books about Cuba and the Five. On June 1st a rally took place in front of the White House followed by an ecumenical-cultural event. There was also a community event, a concert, an event with labor rank and file from the U.S. and abroad, and lobby activities on Capitol Hill.
